Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) is now part of the educational experience of children in most parts of the world. Taught as either a discrete subject or embedded within the curriculum, ICT is increasingly being regarded as a new ‘literacy’, alongside reading, writing and numeracy.

The International Dimension:

In the 21st century no one is unaffected by the staggering progress of information and communication technologies.Today a large proportion of the worlds most successful business leaders are from an ICT background. Fifteen years ago there were hardly any.

A sound development in ICT principles gives confidence to the future business leaders of the world, enabling them fulfill their dreams. They can have the confidence to take direct control and be the masters of their own destinies; not relying on others to realize their own potential. Increasingly the developed countries of the world have invested a great deal of time and money in making sure their students have a sound education in all aspects of ICT. They have done this in the knowledge that so much of the world economy is now driven by and dependent on ICT structures.

The program of study at Stance Dual School in Information and Communication Technologies acknowledges the competencies valued in ICT around the world. The syllabus has been mapped against national standards in a number of countries, so that the skills assessed reflect the performance standards demanded in an international context.
